View Full Version : ATTN: T-Mobile users (phone advice)

I somehow broke the screen on my Motorola Razr phone this morning, so I need a new phone. I want to stick w/ T-Mobile because I have a sick plan w/ them due to my longevity as a customer.

What recommendations do you have for the newest coolest phones in their inventory? I've taken a look at the G1, Sidekicks & Blackberrys, but I wanna hear from you.

Features I want: Phone, text, calender, pics, email & decent web access.

My BB 8220 will be up for sale soon.
I thought I'd like a flip phone, but found it annoying.

Since you run a PC, it's probably more friendly when it comes to sync'ing the phone to the computer. On the Mac it was a horror show.

It's a cool phone, and can do a lot, but not my thing.
Let me know if you're interested. I'd rather it go to a friend than some clown on Fleabay.

I'd say a BB or a G1. Stay away from the Windows Mobile devices, they suck. And the Sidekick sucks even more. My wife has one, and can't possibly imagine why she likes it.

My boss' G1 is possibly the slickest phones I've used lately

I've got a V195s... I think... from when I was a TMobile customer. It doesn't have very friendly web access or email, as it's pretty much just a phone, but the battery life was phenomenal.

EDIT: Yep, here's what I've got:,1425,i=174194,00.jpg

I've switched to Alltel, so it's basically just laying around.

Get the BlackBerry 8900 dude, it simply owns all. It only has EDGE for web browsing but T-Mobile doesn't have 3G in most markets anyways, so go for it!

Make sure you have the 1.5 software. It's faster and has better battery life.

If you're sticking with T-Mobile, then get the G1, you will NOT be disappointed, its a tremendously awesome phone.

Well, I've had it for 30 minutes, so I have a lot of learning to do tonight. ;)
